The scene at Red Bank’s Lunch Break on Thanksgiving was enough to warm anyones heart volunteers serving heaps of steaming food to those in need, who received it with smiles and words of thanks; a hustle-and-bustle kitchen serving hundreds over four hours; and a proud staff overseeing the operations.
Volunteers were not hard to come by. Executive Director Gwendolyn Love said so many would-be helpers began calling as early as September that she eventually had to cut off the list. She was so happy for each of them coming out to pour out their love to people who need help.
